Lolly Cake

Lolly cake is a real kiwi kids favorite! It's also really easy to make and only has a few ingredients. Perfect for a kids birthday party.

Lolly Cake

Makes 20 slices

250 g plain biscuits (I used plain vanilla biscuits)
120 g Butter
200 g light condensed milk
190 g fondant lollies*
Desiccated coconut

1. Process the biscuits to a fine crumb in a food processor. Roughly chop the lollies into small pieces/chunks.

2. Melt the butter with the condensed milk in a saucepan over a low-medium heat.

3. Stir the biscuit crumbs and chopped lollies into the melted butter/condensed milk.

4. Turn out the mixture onto a clean surface and roll into a log. Roll the log in desiccated coconut, wrap in cling film and refrigerate until set (a couple of hours).

5. Cut into slices and store in an airtight container.
